I am a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellow researching music and fear (Project: EMUSIG) at the CANEURO lab at UZH. I recently completed my PhD in Music Theory at The Ohio State University. While there, I worked with David Huron as part of the Cognitive and Systematic Musicology Laboratory and taught undergraduate music theory and aural skills. I am also a cellist and a composer. My research interests include film music, vocal affective cues, topic theory, performance decision making, music theory pedagogy, string pedagogy, and affective neuroscience.
